adding new weapons into game?
« on: Dec 26, 2018; 11:08 AM »
I have an idea to change an appearance of some weapons in game.
For example, for unique or legendary types I want to add new meshes. Is it possible to add a new meshes? Is there any program, which can help me to convert 3d models into hellgate file format?

From what little I've found, the models were originally .gr2 format, then were converted into .am mesh files, with .hkx animation files. I've never found a program that specifically mentions the .am format, but the .hkx seem to be havok physics. That's all I've found.

Read this thread:

In June 2018, Lyra Darius/Alloken  asked Jaehan Lee (one from original game artists) about this problem.
Here is his answer:

Not too much information (
I have read these articles too

http://hellgateaus.info/forum/hellgate-london-modification-discussion/3d-models-importexport/

and this

Allright, I can export *.am, but can't import them back.
Probably, someone here have an experience with importing meshes into game?

It never happened to me.
If you use some program which support original granny v2, then this program everytime show some error while loading file. Im not sure, but i think so there is some "lock" on this files, which used Flagship for protecting files before opening.
